TV show description:
Based on ABC‘s 1970s TV series and the 2003 feature film of the same name, the SWAT TV show on CBS is is a police action drama centering on on Sergeant Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson (Moore). A lifetime Los Angeles local and former Marine, Hondo has been tapped to lead a new “last stop” Special Weapons and Tactics unit.
Because he is L.A. born and raised, Hondo feels deeply loyal not only to his “brothers in blue” but also to the people they serve. This makes him particularly qualified to lead the team and build a bridge between the force and the community.
David “Deacon” Kay (Harrington) is a seasoned, competent officer. Although can’t help but feel overlooked for the top job, he is extremely loyal and committed to the team’s success. On the other hand, newcomer Jim Street (Russell) tends to be overconfident. Still, he has the potential to become a key player.
Hondo’s tactical unit also includes canine trainer Christina “Chris” Alonso (Esco), a skilled officer in her own right. Then there is Dominique Luca (Johnson), whose driving expertise ensures the team is able to get into and out of risky scenarios.
L.A. Metro Captain Jessica Cortez (Sigman), whose profession is her top priority, supervises the SWAT team. She and Hondo also have a personal relationship.
Finally there’s Mumford (Onorati). Bold and self-assured, he heads up another L.A. unit and is certain of his own approach to situations. Although his group and Hondo’s are fierce rivals, they relish their competition.
With Hondo at the lead, the SWAT officers are devoted to their jobs and are willing to lay down their lives to protect and serve.
